Michael has a reputation for saying things that others feel they can’t or shouldn’t say. That is a priceless reputation to have.
Sincere thanks to Michael Patterson for an excellent presentation on the HB Reform issues in Leeds last week, and for all the very helpful info and links. I do intend to respond on behalf of our organisation, but feel that Support Solutions’ response is excellent. E.S. – Caring for Life
Found the seminar very informative and gave an interesting and full insight into current thinking about the consultation. Michael was a very engaging and knowledgeable presenter and encouraged interaction with the audience which led to further relevant points being shared with the room. I shall certainly look out for future events!” M.E. – Care Housing Association
